GRIP

ON THE TRACK & ON THE ROAD

At 200 mph, the surface area of one racing tire touching the track is about half of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, making optimized grip essential for performance. Lessons learned at the track help us develop consumer tires that can keep a tight grip on varying road surfaces.

PRESSURE

ON THE TRACK & ON THE ROAD

During a race, NASCAR drivers and tires experience 2-3 Gs in the turns (Astronauts feel 3 Gs on launches). Developing race tires that can withstand high forces helps us develop consumer tires that provide responsive handling in quick maneuvers.

TRACTION

ON THE TRACK & ON THE ROAD

For superior traction, NASCAR tires use slick treads to maximize surface area contact with the track. Goodyear optimizes tread patterns for each line of consumer tires to help maximize traction and performance in various conditions and road surfaces.

SIDEWALL

ON THE TRACK & ON THE ROAD

When cornering, the right front tire supports approximately 4,000 pounds of load - which is about 4x more than what's experienced on the left side. Goodyear uses strengthened sidewall construction to help cornering control and stability on the road.
